Mission Statement Without Work Is Mission Failure

You could create the sickest mission statement imaginable, and it would mean nothing. There are numerous pie-in-the-sky mission statements that are not achieving anything on the face of the earth due to low or no productivity. A grand mission statement is just that; it does not necessarily produce results or change the world. There is productivity and then, there is activity. This is not the same thing. You can appear to be busy for 45 years while accomplishing nothing. Your mission will fail if you do not do the necessary things.

Our Lord Jesus did not simply declare his mission statement without acting on it every day. He emphasized that he came to serve, not be served (Matthew 20:28). We must carry out the work that is consistent with our mission statement. Working hard enough to achieve objective productivity. It is easy to get distracted away from the core assignment. And one begins to do things that don’t even make sense. There must be some useful, real-world metric that can be used to assess the mission statement’s effectiveness and impact.

Just like Jesus, who diligently fulfilled His mission, we must commit to our tasks with urgency and dedication. He said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.” This reminds us that our time to make an impact is limited. It’s not enough to have a grand mission statement; we must back it up with consistent, meaningful actions. If you focus on real-world results and stay true to your purpose, you can ensure that your efforts lead to genuine and lasting change.
